A brief break in the clouds allows the sun to break through casting a beautiful beam beyond Spar Island on Loch Tay, Perthshire. After an hours drive, it didn't look too promising on arrival for any drama on this particular evening, but a little patience was rewarded in spades. A fabulous evening to be out with the camera.

A revisited shot. Looking back I felt the processing last time lacked a bit of finesse, so I had a play. Introduced both a lighter and darker bracketed shot into this one to expand the shadow and highlight detail.

Cheers for looking in.

Paul

Just looked back at the previous version, and yes, this has certainly been worth your effort in reworking it.

Can't remember now Andy as it was a little while back but I think it was a 0.6 Hard ND Grad.

This one is predominanlty a single shot but has both a lighter and darker image blended back in to reveal a little more shadow detail and retain a touch more highlight detail around the island and the sun burst.
